## My Maths

Don’t forget that you can practise lots of Maths activities on http://www.mymaths.co.uk

There is home learning set every week for you to complete.

Only the last few weeks, only a few in the class have been having a go. If you could try a couple of activities during half term it would help to keep your Maths brains active!

## Using conjunctions

We have been thinking about using different conjunctions in our sentences. Using ‘and’ and ‘because’ to link clauses is correct, but we shouldn’t use those words all the time. Using a mixture of conjunctions keeps our writing interesting for our reader.

Try and use each of these words to create some compound sentences.

## Water Cycle

We have been looking at how the states of water change in the water cycle.

Can you use these words to explain the water cycle to someone in your family?

We filled the bags with water so that we could see the water cycle in action. You can already see some of the condensation inside the bag.

## Confidence with small numbers

If we are solving 433 + 6, the maths we need to do is only a small equation!

We know that 3 + 6 = 9, and we use that to help us work out that 433+6 = 439

What small equations do you solve in order to help you work out the larger ones?

## Websites

We are exploring websites.

We use the world wide web all the time, but have you thought about how the websites are actually constructed?

A URL can tell us a lot about a website and where it’s based.

Links help us to reach other content in a browser.

Hovering before we click on a link helps us to make safer choices because we can see where it will take us.

## Place Value

We have been becoming confident with adding and subtracting multiples of 10, 100 and 1000 quickly to a number.

Make sure you practise, you need to remember that the place value will stay the same for some digits depending on what you are adding.

Try counting on in tens, hundreds and thousands from ANY number!

Try the number machine below. Add some numbers of your own and see what comes out.

## Here We Are

We are looking at Oliver Jeffers’ story ‘Here we are’

We have been thinking about all the things in the world that we should be grateful for.

What have been the positive experiences that you have have this year?

Have you shared them with others?

What are you looking forward to in the future?
